Targeted RBC Offer for WestJet Mastercard holders: 50 bonus WestJet dollars for making $1,000 in pre-authorized payments

If you have the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard or WestJet RBC Mastercard check your in box to see if you have been targeted for this new offer. Select cardholders will be able to earn 50 bonus WestJet dollars after they enroll in the offer and spend at least $1,000 or more on reoccurring pre-authorized payments. You have to register by April 25 and the payments have to be made between May 1 and July 31.

While 50 dollars doesn’t seem like much of a boost for spending $1,000 it does work out to a maximum 0.5% increase on these cards. If you already use one of them for pre-authorized payments or feel like switching it over from other cards by all means do so. Just check to see if you are eligible for the offer and register for it. If you didn’t get the email you can always log in to your RBC account online or on the app and if you are eligible the offer will be in the RBC offers section.

Anytime you can get a bonus you should take advantage of it so long as it provides additional value to you. By that I mean, if you are switching payments from another card to one of these two to earn the 50 you need to look at what you would earn in terms of points or miles with that other card versus this card. For example, right now I can earn 4 bonus points per dollar on my pre-authorized mobile phone payments put on my Cobalt card – that’s an extra 4% per dollar spent so it wouldn’t make sense for me to switch my cell phone bill over to my WestJet card for that additional half percent.
